Palatal displacement of the maxillary canine tooth is a positional variation thought generally to develop as a result of local factors, such as retained deciduous canines, anomalous permanent lateral incisors, or dental crowding. This article contributes biologic evidence pointing to genetic factors as the primary origin of most palatal displacements and(More)
Maxillary canine-first premolar (Mx.C.P1) transposition, an uncommon dental anomaly involving positional interchange of the two teeth, was studied using a sample of 43 subjects with the abnormality. Data were recorded on sidedness, sex, race, tooth agenesis, and peg-shaped maxillary lateral incisors for each case. Mx.C.P1 transposition occurred bilaterally(More)
Angle's designation of the Class II Division 2 (II/2) malocclusion recognizes a unique combination of overbite, incisor retroclination, and sagittal discrepancy. A very severe II/2 phenotype, characterized by concealment of the mandibular incisors in occlusion, has been called Deckbiss in German, or cover-bite. In this report, the cover-bite malocclusion is(More)
An x-ray cephalographic method was used to analyze 52 exceptionally well-balanced white adult faces for skeletal asymmetry in the posteroanterior (PA) projection. Three frontal facial lines were constructed using bilateral skeletal landmarks: latero-superior orbit (LO), lateral zygoma (Zyg), and gonion (Go). All subjects demonstrated measurable asymmetries.(More)

Tooth transposition is a severe disturbance of tooth order and eruptive position, involving certain teeth, that may occur at any of several specific sites in the mouth. Published cases of transposition involving maxillary teeth were gathered from worldwide sources to study, identify, and classify these occurrences of orthodontic interest. With a sample of(More)
The historical aspects of facial esthetics and its role in orthodontic teachings and practice are traced to their origins in classical art. Related discussions include the failure of "divine proportions," the ascent of the Class II facies, and the influence of 19th century pseudoscience. Today, the treatment of facial form for a diverse society requires a(More)
Mandibular lateral incisor-canine (Mn.I2.C) transposition is a rare developmental disturbance of tooth order characterized by positional interchange of the two teeth. In children with Mn.I2.C anomaly, the mandibular lateral incisor shows distal ectopic eruption and the adjacent canine subsequently erupts mesial to it. A sample of 60 orthodontic patients(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the prevalence of dental anomalies in patients with agenesis of second premolars and compare the findings with the prevalence of these anomalies in the general population. MATERIALS AND METHODS A Brazilian sample of 203 patients aged 8 to 22 years was selected. All patients presented agenesis of at least one second premolar.(More)
Certain discrete malpositions of the human canine tooth and agenesis of at least 1 tooth (hypodontia) are abnormalities known to occur together frequently. This study examines the specificity of tooth-agenesis sites associated with the occurrence of 3 unambiguous canine malpositions: palatally displaced canine (PDC; n = 58), mandibular lateral(More)
